Buffalo detectives say four people were shot Saturday night in an entertainment complex in the first block of East Amherst Street, leaving one of the victims in critical condition.
Northeast District officers responded to the call just after 10:30 p.m. at the Zone One Complex. Police said two females and two males were transported to Erie County Medical Center, where one of the females was reported to be in critical condition Sunday.
One of the males, who was struck by gunfire in the toe, was later arrested by Buffalo police and charged with criminal possession of a handgun.
In a statement released Sunday, Zone One’s management expressed sympathy to the victims’ families and said it was changing its hours and age requirements to be open no later than 10 p.m. and that anyone under 21 can only enter with a parent. The venue said it employs a licensed armed guard at the door and that new software will scan IDs more efficiently.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call or text the police confidential tip-call line at 716-847-2255.
